Tanenbaum promotes justice and builds respect for religious difference by transforming individuals and institutions to reduce prejudice, hatred, and violence.

As a secular and non-sectarian non-profit, Tanenbaum works to promote religious peacebuilders who help counter extremism and violence in armed conflicts, and tackles religious bullying of students, harassment in workplaces, and disparate health treatment for people based on their beliefs.


Tanenbaum is one of the leading organizations in the world focused on the religious dimension of cultural competence in health care. We work directly with health care organizations including large health care systems, small- and mid-size hospitals, and medical and nursing schools. We also publish curricula, create simulated clinician experiences and eLearning modules, and participate in national and international conferences.

Our trainings and materials enable health care professionals at all levels to build skills to communicate effectively and respectfully with patients and their families around religious issues and understand the variety of ways religious beliefs and practices interface with health care. Our services include the following: briefings and workshops at all levels within the health care setting, Grand Rounds presentations, webinars, medical education curriculum development, panel discussions, conference workshops and plenary sessions, consulting on better practices as well as comprehensive needs assessments of health care facilities.
